Town Kitchen & Bar is marking 10 years of global comfort food, served in a sophisticated, upbeat and urban atmosphere by partners Brandon Laurie, John Janette and Mike Altman, Executive Chef.
Marking the anniversary will be classic dishes from past menus to highlight October’s fare with featured dishes each day and a happy hour extended to 8 p.m.
“We created a concept that combined friends, family, great service and global comfort food,” said Janette. “We wanted a place where people would feel comfortable coming here a couple of times a week — a real neighborhood spot.”
One of South Miami’s most popular restaurants, Town serves lunch and dinner seven days weekly with a sumptuous breakfast/brunch on weekends.
Happy hours and ladies night promotions, a late night DJ, and specialty cocktails keep the place hopping and full of life.
In addition to superbly-mixed cocktails, Town boasts an extensive wine and beer list that will soon include locally-produced micro-brewery specialties. Town offers catering services and space for private events within the main restaurant and in the adjacent “Side Bar,” an intimate and relaxed party room featuring its own bar and a special menu. In addition to the spacious interior, there are couches and tables for drinking and dining al fresco.
Town’s easy-going décor is the perfect place to enjoy one of Chef Altman’s signature dishes accompanied by choices from a wine list that is constantly being refined and updated by Janette with discounted bottles available. (Town consistently earns the Wine Spectator Award of Excellence).
Chef Altman’s interest in preparing crowd-pleasing food began by helping his father’s catering business before he moved to Miami from Long Island, NY. in 2005. A graduate of the Culinary Institute of America, he honed his skills working under renowned restaurateur Charlie Palmer.
“I like the hometown feel of Town and South Miami,” said Chef Altman. “Global comfort food, simply prepared with a hip flair is what we have achieved here.”
Menu favorites include a triple-ground Town beef burger, a classic salad, and an array of small plates to share with friends at midnight.
Town is located at 7301 SW 57 Ct. in Plaza 57, designed by local architect Jason Chandler with an arcaded walkway that spans sidewalks, inviting pedestrians and lovers of outdoor dining to gather, enjoy cool shade, and experience South Miami’s relaxing ambiance. Garage and on-street parking are available.
